2p 20131104 peach

Here is 2P/Encke from Nov 4th. The Ion tail is very narrow and seems more prominent than back on Oct 30th. The nearby galaxy is NGC 4808. It will be tough to get colour images from now on as its rapidly falling into bright twilight as it continues toward perihelion in a couple of weeks from now. 20"CDK with FLI-PL11002. LRGB. L: 5x2mins. RGB: 1x2mins. 20131104 Damian Peach
